    Hired attorney

    The most unprofessional attorney to work with. Let me start off by saying I was insulted by him on numerous occasions, which I shrugged off because I was convinced that he would be the person to help me get everything I want in my custody case. He started off strong and extremely convincing but by the second time meeting with him I was being advised to give into certain things that I am not willing to compromise. His attitude changed from a strong hardworking attorney who I can trust to someone who's already been paid and does not care about what happens ragardless of what I wanted. He was never personally reachable, I was always in contact with one of the many assistants he has. During our phone conversations I was always put on hold where I can hear full conversations not regarding my case. While in office I was constantly interrupted by other phone calls which were put on speaker so that my mother and I can hear someone else's case info. This made me uncomfortable because this meant that other clients were able to hear my phone calls and know all about my case. No one ever knew what my case was about while on the phone with me, admitting that they did not currently have my file opened, so I was constantly having to remind them who I was and what my case was about. Never felt like anyone cared enough about my case to fully understand what I needed. I finally terminated his services when ALL of my personal information was sent to the opposing party. Paperwork with mine and my daughters social security numbers, my bank and credit card statements, my w2's and my tax information via email. With all personal numbers viewable. When I voiced my concern I was told that I should have known that they would share that information and that the ipposing party was entitled to that information INCLUDING all personal numbers of mine such as my social, bank account number, credit card number etc. I'm appalled at the lack of professionalism and organizations this office has. I would ONLY recommend this attorney to my worst enemy. Your retainer will not be refundable.

    I WOULD NOT EVEN GIVE ONE STAR IF I DIDNT HAVE TO.

    Mr. Weissman took over a nasty divorce from my prior attorney and was great. He never promised me anything other than great service and a fair fee and he delivered. His staff was great, and he was amazing in court. I was very happy with my result, and his fee was fair

  • WORST ATTORNEY EVER

    1.0 star

    Posted by a Child Custody client

    I HAVE USED THIS ATTORNEY. HE DOES NOT KNOW YOUR CASE AT ALL, THEREFORE, WHEN YOU GO TO COURT, HE CANNOT DEFEND YOU. HE DOUBLE BILLS YOU FOR TIME AND BILLS YOU FOR TIME YOU WEREN'T EVEN IN HIS OFFICE. . HE LACKS ETHICS AND HAS COMMUNICATION PROBLEMS. HE DOES NOT PROPERLY ADVISE YOU AND DOES NOT PREPARE YOU FOR DEPOSITION, TRIAL OR MEDIATION. HE ALSO DOES NOT THE RULES OF LAW. YOU WILL GO BROKE.. HE CONSTANTLY HANGS UP ON YOU WHEN YOU QUESTION HIM ABOUT SOMETHING HE DOES NOT WANT TO ANSWER.. HE DRAGS HIS PARA LEGAL ALONG WITH HIM TO COURT AND ALL MEETINGS. SO THEREFORE, YOU ARE BEING CHARGED DOUBLE.. HIS PARA LEGAL IS RUDE, AND HIS STAFF KNOWS LESS THAN HE DOES. HE ALSO CONSTANTLY WITHDRAWS FROM YOUR CASE THE MINUTE YOU QUESTION HIS AUTHORITY. HE IS A DISGRACE TO HIS PROFESSION.

  • THE WORST LAWYER EVER!!!! Do not

    1.0 star

    Posted by a Child Custody client

    I was foolish for thinking that maybe the negative reviews on Harold Weissman were maybe just to harsh. So I went against my better judgement and hired him. In the beginning he was nice and responsive but was slow to act. After 2months of my case it just seemed as if he didn't care. In court there was no fire or fight. He just allowed the opposing counsel to do all the talking. After almost a 2 years and $18,000 later. I still don't have my case resolved. DO NOT HIRE HIM!!!!! Save your money for a better lawyer, one that will actually care and do there job.

  • Don't WASTE Your Money! Bad Attorney

    Didn't KNOW my case...had NO clue what was going on. Relied too much on his Para Legal who also had NO clue! Did NOT do things in a timely fashion. Charged me for Para Legal AND Attorney charges at the same time so it was like double charging. Did NOT prepare for Depos and just winged by. Tried to charge me more per hour in the midst of my case. Felt like this lawyer was more interested in taking my money then representing me properly.

  • Thankful for the Good Resolution of my Case

    My case was resolved with the best possible resolution. Mr. Weissman billed fairly, and his staff was always available (and responded promptly), by phone and email. Of the attorney's I had contacted, he was the only attorney who had confidence in my case, which had the potential of ruining me financially if not handled well. He was eager to take on the opposing counsel. And his advice was always in my best interest.

  • Took $5000 retainer and did no work

    He promised to handle my divorce once I moved out of Florida and then declined saying he could not do out of state divorces. When I asked him
    to return the retainer of 5k he said he had already cashed it and refused to repay me. When I asked him why he gave me fall assurances- he claimed that was "professional advice" and cost $5000. Unprofessional behavior and lack of ethics. Disgrace to his profession.

    I came to Mr. Weissman, after using another lawyer. As soon as I spoke to him I felt comfortable. He told me what he wanted to accomplish, and what I was Entitled to. He Got me more than He said I would Get. I ended up with almost twice as much as my first attorney told me to take. He is the Man

  • Lack of character no communication. Don't waist your money.

    Knowledge? Maybe. But he has NEVER called me back when I've left messages. And when I have finally reached him, he put me on hold and transfeerred me to the secretary. The secretary (Iris) is worthless. She never returns my calls either. All the 'communication' I get from them are bills.
    They cancelled the last hearing without even contacting me. I found out because I called them. They also scheduled mediation without my knowledge which I cancelled as soon as I found out (by calling them of course, cause they never call). All the 'communication' I get from them are bills.
    This was only a simple child support case and I've been waiting for 4 months for them to file a court hearing!! I've had 4 attorneys before, for child support, and have never experience such bad service. Dont waste your money.
